Being the major release of our favorite e-commerce platform, Magento 2.4 comes with lots of performance and security updates that can better your site in various ways. Magento 2.4 gives you the ability to access the most cutting-edge innovations within the industry as well as provide the best features for your website.
In this blog, we will go through some of the key Magento 2.4 updates for Magento Commerce that merchants should look into.
This is another great feature included in Magento 2.4 updates. In September 2020, Adobe launched automated monthly delivery of Site-Wide Analysis Tool reports to Magento Commerce Cloud users.

While Magento is a safe platform, they’ve still taken the opportunity to boost their protection by closing remote code execution (RCE) and cross-site scripting (XSS) weaknesses. There are about 30 other security enhancements, 226 GitHub issues that have been resolved and more than 100 core code fixes. Plus, Magento has added CAPTCHA to order placement and WEB API endpoints related to the information of payments.
Other security highlights are as follows:
The new Media Gallery allows bulk image operations, duplicate detection, and custom metadata. Magento also reduces the cost and time to market for headless storefronts as they continue to build out PWA Studio components and expand GraphQL coverage for key Magento capabilities, including product reviews, gift options, and rewards.
Magento 2.4 updates also come with a Security-Only Patch, Magento 2.3.5-p2, to fix some security and performance problems with the last version. It is recommended that users download the most updated version of the program to stay ahead of the curve.
In December, PHP 7.3 will reach its end of support. To ensure compatibility and compliance for the 2.3 release line, Magento will add support for PHP 7.4 to Magento 2.3.7 release in May. This Magento 2.4 update will bring backward-incompatible changes into 2.3.7 that may affect users’ websites and extensions. To avoid interruptions, all merchants are encouraged to adopt Magento’s latest minor release 2.4.x, which supports PHP 7.4, or update to 2.3.7 once it’s available.
